In the interest of full disclosure it was discovered an error was made wherein the inverse was mistakenly used to arrive at the cost difference between countries. Actually the previously recommended product is 3X more in the friend’s country than in the United States. That in itself seems odd since shipping and manufacturing costs can’t possible account for the higher price. Obviously taxes and trade restrictions, possibly masquerading as protectionism, are involved.
PM differences between Asia and the United States were on the mark, however. India’s attempt to restrict their populations buying of PMs is not working and has increased the black market there as a result, according to reports.
In researching a product to recommend to a friend in another country it was discovered that the cost of this “American” product (probably made in China) is 1/3 of what it costs in the United States. Having looked at PM charts over a period of years the same seems to be true of pricing for PMs, although the margin is much narrower.
Apparently our only purpose is as cannon fodder or some other serf-like usefulness to the worldwide elitists and banksters. They really do hate us and our attachment to liberty. Ultimately there is no greater weapon against an adversary (in this case us) than an economic one.
Those who have an understanding of how to use the Internet in other countries and their native languages take a look for yourself.

Today there was a notice that Firefox had a new update that was to work better with Yahoo. I just tried to see if the issue of following the posts of a particular message board screen name would give the correct banner located on another message board. Apparently Firefox has been able to introduce code that corrects Yahoo’s lousy programming. At least so far it works and provides the correct banner.
As far as “refreshing” the human resources at Yahoo, that would have to be a top down approach, which is not likely with big “money” in support of the status quo.
Thanks. That does change the banner. Apparently from the replies here others didn't know about this either.
It seem a refresh could have been built into the code. If so why would it take Yahoo programmers so long to correct the problem? Were those tasks outsourced to less capable programmers in India or China to save "money"? Or as previously stated, is it a way to make the message board less usable with plausible deniability as cover for deliberately downgrading functionality, as mentioned previously. It should make us wonder what plausible deniability will be part of the "new design" mentioned by "dalerobin".
HapiWondrers are non-Jews. What is posted here is from Wikipedia and the book, “The Creature from Jekyll Island”. The second source was used as will be seen below.
gpawx3 said: “…Jews control everything else in this country…”
That’s a broad brush statement. Differences exist between those who call themselves Jews. Those who returned to Frankish lands during the reign of Charlemagne took up occupations in money lending, finance & commerce as occupations open to minorities. They are mostly Ashkenazi.
The Rothschilds (originally Bauer) and their fortune came into existence in the 18th century from Mayer Amschel Bauer’s goldsmith shop. His son hung a red sign over the door of the shop as the beneficiary of the father’s business after his death and changed the family name to Rothschild (the German words for red shield being “roth schild”) By lending to governments, mostly to fund their war making efforts, the Rothschild’s fortune grew enormously from its start in a small shop by engaging in black market lending to warring countries of the day (blood money). Offices were open in other countries by the original Rothschild’s descendents, making black market lending less of a problem. Alexander Hamilton was a Rothschild agent, which explains much of this country’s current economic difficulties. Rothschild’s are identified predominantly as Zionists, which distinguishes them from other branches of Judaism.
US Constitutional law relating to money was the work of Alexander Hamilton designating it as “legal tender”, leaving an opening to bring about today’s current fiat money system that could come into existence without the competition of specie. Back then confidence in privately minted specie was guaranteed by counter stamping prior to establishment of the US Mint, which today could be at no cost to providers of coinage with onsite inspectors. Hamilton was the founder of the US Mint. Counterfeiting should again be punishable by death per the Coinage Act of 1792.
It’s useless to have a discussion with you. You don’t supply the titles of respected editorialists for backup; just your opinions backed by nothing & meant to evoke anger in those you reply to. In short, you are a flaming troll. Know that nothing you write does anything but cause those at this screen name & others to ignore your views.
When something’s posted from this screen name it will be backed up from other sources, or can be if requested.
As far as your implication that Fox news & Limbaugh are gold standard supporters, that’s ridiculous. It’s the one thing in their commentary they appear to avoid at all costs, which means they are bought & paid for by the banksters. And they apparently feel that providing an understanding of the horrendous damage the Fed is doing to this country is not something that will improve their ratings. Limbaugh & his followers provide entertainment, but that’s about it. Limbaugh fails many times to broadcast serious government malfeasance if it involves Republicans.
Limbaugh’s failure to criticize the Bush Administration for not coming to the defense of US Border Patrol Agents, Ignacio Ramos & Jose Compean for shooting at a fleeing narcotics trafficker, resulting in their prosecution by Johnny Sullivan in a west Texas courtroom & sentencing by Judge Kathleen Cardone for 11 & 12 years was outrageous. Limbaugh hung up on a caller that requested his opinion. Bush commuted their sentences but no pardon. Limbaugh is close buds with Michael Milken, however. Your buddy, Obama, hasn’t seen fit to issue a pardon to them. Look it up yourself. Yahoo character limitations & link disallowance create too much effort.
The Daily Paul is visited. They understand the implications of the seriousness of Federal Reserve money counterfeiting, as does the Alex Jones website. They stand up for what most believe to be values most Americans hold (apparently not you).
Why don’t you just get lost & quit cluttering up this message board.
A while back there was a guy that had a website titled, “Outsource Congress”. He was a programmer and the company he was with brought in a bunch of programmers from India and told him to train them. After he had completed the training they fired him. That’s the kind of people we have running companies currently. Probably Yahoo’s no different and that could explain why the message boards are so messed up. The bean counters can’t see beyond their spread sheets and are like wrecking balls with their decisions.
Since you can’t come up with any opinions that comport with your own as links, here’s one:
This is an FBI document, but it could as well be something out of the NSA. If you think that is not a growing tendency to turn America into a Nat-c state, perhaps you should relieve yourself of your ignorance.
By the way, this is near where the IRS division was located that stonewalled giving the Tea Party tax exempt status prior to the Presidential Election.
Notice that the document from the link defines the protestors as “anarchists” even before they assembled in protests, despite the fact that what is disclosed by OWS states intentions of peaceable assembly. It is one thing to become prepared in case things get out of hand, but quite another to assume it will and define those assembled as anarchists.
Throughout this document OWS organizers emphasized peaceful demonstrations. This report indicates infiltrators bent on violence, which suggests what would amount in warfare to a black flag operation by corporate and banking interests. Note the extensive redaction within, some apparently to protect those that were part of the report. In most cases these redactions were not to protect protestors, but rather commercial and banking interests except for unrelated protests. There were indications of violence in this report, not by OWS, but by those opposed, yet main stream reports at the time never referred to these activities, but rather the unseemly disarray on the grounds that some would suspect as being the work of infiltrators trying to disrupt the protests.
There is reference about 1/2-2/3 of the way down this document about plans to kill OWS leadership, not exactly something in support of the Bill of Rights. Names of spies to the sniper story were redacted. The link to the above information was from “Daily Paul”.
Nip it in the bud, before it becomes Nat-c Germany.
Put on your reading glasses. Obama's EOs are 923 or 63, according to source. Wiki states 63. Without actually doing the research as to which is correct no conclusions can be made, other than the reference to Andrew Jackson who issued the first EO in history to not renew the charter of the 2nd Bank of the US.
So what's YOUR point?
“Not to worry. US will not be outdone: …”
That’s an understatement:
Obama’s executive order count in under 2 terms is 923 (163):
308 times more than Teddy Roosevelt (1,081)
84 times more than FDR (3,522)
185 times more than Truman (907)
462 times more than Eisenhower (484)
231 times more than Kennedy (214)
231 times more than Johnson (325)
923 times more than Nixon (346)
308 times more than Ford (169)
308 times more than Carter (320)
185 times more than Reagan (381)
308 times more than Bush 1 (166)
51 times more than Clinton (364)
15 times more than Bush 2 (291)
The 2nd table indicates the above list is incorrect. The author obviously is attempting to engage in revisionist history for Obama’s sake. Amendments to previous executive orders count as well. Amendments were also included for other Presidents.
Wikipedia’s count is different. It tends to be similar to the first table. The count in Wikipedia is in parentheses.
All Presidents have a tendency to become control freaks. Executive orders have been a way to circumvent Congress.
The Specie Circular (executive order by Andrew Jackson) should be of particular interest to those who visit this message board. It was brought on by Jackson’s opposition to the 2nd Bank of the US (an early version of the Federal Reserve Act). It is claimed that Jackson was the target of an assassination attempt, while some say Kennedy was assassinated for his Executive Order 11000 that was to put silver coinage into circulation. Current reports absolve Lee Harvey Oswald of the assassination as a patsy. The conclusion of the physical damage to Kennedy flies in the face of physics as it implies the attack was from the front. Even lay people could arrive at such a conclusion that definitely speaks to a cover-up. There is an obvious increase over time since 1836 to avoid Congressional decisions and allow decisions to be made by what amounts to that of a king, rather than a President.
Nobody cares about YOUR opinion. That should be easy for you to show since you are claiming a majority of "insane" people think this way.
“…I sent comments to Yahoo when a survey popped up but I am sure that fell on deaf ears so to say. …”
It was found out long ago that ANY feedback to Yahoo not only is a waste of time, but if they do answer it will be a canned, “This would violate our TOS” as a reason.
These aren’t dullards. These are stonewalling jerkz that know you have something valuable to suggest for most who inhabit their message boards, which they don’t want to make too robust. To do so would enable people to go in a direction that is not wanted. When you’re dealing with control freaks outcomes are obvious.
Ever since Meyer came on board as CEO the changes have been predictable
• No more links.
• Seriously constrained character limitations. (with high capacity terabyte servers, not excusable)
• White listings of some links only with Yahoo approval
Carol Bartz was better, as far as msg boards were concerned, probably due to her experience at companies peopled by a lot of engineers. She blames her departure on engaging in the type of foul language that takes place on an everyday basis by her male counterparts. This is not to support of such behavior, but rather a recognition of what is considered part of the requirement to be in the walnut paneled CEO’s environment. It extends a level of intimidation to lesser employees that don’t wish to engage in such behavior, even if it means promotion to do so.
Meyer has had a close connection to banking (Union Bank of Switzerland, for example), and therefore knows all the ins and outs of opaque inflation taxation. Major financial rags give her high marks as a capable manager. Of course that is what we are really talking about here, because constraining free speech is the only way fraudulent central bank counterfeit monopoly money operations can continue. Probably behind the scenes she is a big supporter of Diane Feinstein’s attempts at 1st amendment restrictions on freedom of speech, as well as her stated support of our POTUS run for office.
If you are on a particular message board and click on the screen name of someone who posted you’ll get a list of their posts. Many times that list will include messages by that screen name from other message boards. If you click on the topic from one of their posts, knowing that it comes from another message board, their post will be displayed, but it always wrongly reports in a big banner headline the same message board you had been on when selecting that screen name, and not the one where the post is located (the one you were at when you clicked on that screen names post listings. This is beyond stupid and certainly could have been dealt with a long time ago.
This is VERY frustrating because it can take a LONG time to locate on which message board the post really belongs on making follow-up nearly impossible.
Is this stupidity by the Yahoo programming staff or an effort to make the message boards less useful? Of course most know that Yahoo's CEO, Melissa Meyer, is an Obama supporter.
On a similar note Senator Diane Feinstein, Democrat-CA, is attempting to do away with the first amendment of the Bill of Rights by changing the meaning of the free press to include only news outlets that are government sanctioned. Most probably message boards like this one will no longer have 1st amendment protection. She’s a bloody Cummie and those people in California are complete Zombies for continually returning her to office. It still seems that the best solution for the rest of the country is to build a fence around that State and let them go their own way so they self-destruct in their misguided selection of candidates in their elections.
HapiWondrers feels free to voice this criticism currently, but how long will that last?
You are asking more than can be provided, both due to constraints on our time, and Yahoo character limitations.
Simply put; the government that governs least governs best. All manner of relationships of citizens to government can be taken from that statement. Unfortunately what we have now is the opposite.
When you say: “…citizens of the FEDERAL GOV of the USA…” that’s a strange way to characterize our relationship with the government. It places citizens in a category of servitude. We think of government as an instrument of representation through those we elect. What it has become, rather, is our master with it having become the puppet of financial and banking interests, defining us as serfs in the process. For a while it seemed the Occupy Wall Street crowd might reverse this relationship, but it became obvious that they had allowed themselves to be infiltrated by bankster agents to their discredit, which it seems was successful. Unfortunately most that have climbed the ladder of success in recent years have forgotten that their success was based on a foundation of liberty. They have eroded this through unmitigated self-interest by manipulation of the political process, as the corporatocrats that they are.
The biggest threats we face, for those of us who are not allied with the Federal Reserve in some way, is the destruction of the economy through money counterfeiting. This should be obvious from the dollar’s loss in value, or as bankster’s prefer to characterize it, inflation, which implies price increases are totally disconnected from the private Federal Reserve’s counterfeiting.
This is not the first time historically that price levels were attempted to be manipulated to favor special interests. It seems that yet again the lessons of history have been forgotten, so the mistakes are again being repeated with the outcome of failure being a certainty, just as it was previously. When free markets exist the tendency is to even out any inequities.
We are libertarians. That means we don’t support political parties, except in special instances when they represent our views. That is the definition of “stupid” to do otherwise. Also, “Eternal Vigilance” is the price we pay to retain our freedoms, and so standing behind the contention that the NSA is headed into something similar to Nat-c Germany by its tendencies is not “stupid”.
Obviously you are an Obama supporter. This links you to a party that never has liked the concept of liberty going back to the Civil War when it was the party of slave owners. While you are somewhat correct about the history of the NSA, you’ve parsed your words in order to remove Obama from any blame for supporting it. Character limitations on this message board are 2000, which doesn’t allow a full accounting on ANY subject, which could be circumvented if Yahoo had not taken away the ability to post links. You take advantage of this with your “straw man” arguments on issues that don’t comport with your views. In so doing you’ve labeled yourself as a partisan.
In a piece titled, “Obama heads to vacation with defense of National Security Agency, ObamaCare” goes against your contention that:
Interesting you said Obama's backing of the NSA.
All programs were started way before Obama and expanded by GWB.
PRESIDENT HAS DONE ALL IN HIS POWER (emphasis added) to correct the mess GWB created.
Actually the NDA goes back to a raid by Pancho Villa on Columbus, NM during the Wilson Admin, a Democrat that approved of what has lead to many current problems, such as the FED (1913), the Income Tax (1913) and the NDA (1916). As far as the NSA, its formation was begun under the Truman Admin in 1947, another Democrat. Undoubtedly Eisenhower understood these as a growing threat to American ideals when he made his statements on leaving office about the “military industrial complex”.
When you call others “stupid” at least get your facts straight or look in a mirror.
You do really need to become informed.
One of the greatest men in current history to stand for the cause of liberty was Dr. Thomas S. Szasz, who was a psychiatrist at the Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, NY. We lost an important advocate for human freedom against what he referred to as “the therapeutic state”. He died late last year at 92.
In the many books he wrote criticizing “mental health”, he concluded that psychiatry was so damaging to the concept of a free people that it might be best if it was expunged as a medical specialty. His arguments were so well thought out in debates with those who thought differently it seemed his opponents might crawl away like the snakes that they were/are.
Please take this advice and read one of his books, “Law, Liberty and Psychiatry” which would be a good start. Of his comments to his medical doctor detractors never to be refuted was that no death certificate EVER written states a cause of death as “mental illness”, or any of the large and growing number of phony sub-categories. It is not a precipitating factor when death occurs either.
Since you grew up in Germany where the Nat-c’s used psychiatric institutions to quell political dissent you should know better. The Russians under Stalin up until the Mikhail Gorbachev era also depended on this to silence dissent. In fact you can look around this planet and find many other countries doing the same, including China where mental institutions are being used to silence the Falun Gong. With Obama’s backing of the NSA, which includes imprisonment of those deemed to be “terrorists” without trial and indeterminate sentences, the advocates for “mental” prisons and thought police on this topic should be considered no different than those who acted to expose others to the secret police in Nat-c Germany as being among our worst enemies. The rule of law should be the determining factor for those deemed to be an illegal threat to others who are law-abiding.
“I have read several of your posts and IMO you need medication.”
That is the typical response of someone who is unable to discuss things in a way that advances understanding, and so must engage in threats, rather than debating the issues. Yes, it is understood that you were positing a threat, just as dictators, such as Stalin and Hitler did, imprisoning many for being in disagreement, and has become common fare in the United States to quell any responses not available by the normal mode of civil conversation.
Some day the many will square off against the few, like you, because they will have become fed up with having their liberties sacrificed on the alter of the therapeutic state and all its tentacles of mind altering mythological “solutions” in no way attached to the real ones. It is very important that people learn to identify what you represent for the day when this country descends into revolution, as the Founders stated was their responsibility when all efforts for peaceful change and the restoration of their liberties has failed. You will be on the outside looking in at that point in time and the rest of us will have to see that it remains that way.
Do us all a favor and take your keyboard back to a more favorable clime for you, like perhaps Syria or Iran, lakid, and don’t be a disruptive influence on this message board again. You should take with you those that think as you do as well.
As far as your having read our posts, yours were read as well. You are too ignorant to post most of the comments you’ve made. None of them are backed up by what expert opinion you could find on the Internet instead of the drivel you invent and post as being fact, but is only YOUR opinion.
